Re: “Meauxbar to reopen in May after Sainte Marie closes

For those who don't know, and didn't find out from this article because it wasn't mentioned any-friggin'-where, Meauxbar is at 942 Rampart Street, at the corner of St. Philip.

Re: “Bob Marley estate sues Raising Cane's, Raising Cane's responds

The Marley estate was foolish not to trademark the phrase themselves. They have created a range of products, including coffee and other foods, that would have benefited from such a recognizable slogan. I understand their objection, since their food products are all organic and sustainably raised and marketed. Raising Cane's chickens are most definitely not organic, free-range, no antibiotics or hormones, etc.. Maybe the Marleys should sue for defamation.

Re: “Review: New Orleans Cake Cafe

Cake Cafe serves some of the tastiest shrimp & grits to be found anywhere. The shrimp are briny and fresh 16-20's (I'm guessing), and the simple creole sauce tastes like the ocean with cayenne and tomatoes. The biscuits and gravy, with either the sausage or the mushroom gravy is a delicious and filling breakfast as well. In season, they serve a flaky pastry with custard and fresh strawberries that I like to call the Cake Cafe "Straw-gasm." Overall, my favorite daytime hang in the Bywater.

Re: “Gov. Bobby Jindal got national headlines when he suggested birth control pills be made available without a prescription. What do you think?

More profits for Big Pharma. (non-prescription drugs are not covered by drug plan addendums to health insurance). I'll bet this proposal is being supported, and was probably written by Louisiana's pharmaceutical lobby. Can you say "major donor?"
This plan could be workable if there was a provision to provide pills to those who cannot afford them (the poor and uninsured), and to mandate that birth control pills be kept on the drug plan schedules as covered drugs, regardless.
